A sun room is a great place to do container gardening
Sun Rooms and Container Gardening: More to Know
Here are some more points about container gardening in your sun room :
Place the green peppers and hot peppers in a third container. Choose earlier maturing varieties rather than later. Peppers may be harvested at any stage, even if they aren’t full size.
Check the pot’s soil every day when temperatures are over 90 degrees F. If the soil is dry to a depth of 2 inches, it’s time to water. Another sign that the plants need water is the soil pulling away from the sides of the pots. Don’t use wilting as a sign the pot needs water. In mid-afternoon during the summer months, many plants wilt a bit from the hot Arizona sun even though their soil is moist.
Fertilize every week with water-soluble fertilizer at half strength. When you have to water often you’re washing some nutrients out.
Deep water the plants once a month by filling the pot with water to the rim several times. Arizona’s water is full of minerals. The minerals build up in the soil. Flush the minerals out once a month.

Remember, that every type of container you have should have a drip tray as well as a way for you to water your plants. Always water your plants
Uses of a Sun Room: Some Final Thoughts
You can use your sun room for so many things. You can use it to garden with, and as a place to relax. You can use one for a craft room, or a home theater. If you’re an astronomer, you can use one as your own makeshift observatory. It can be your dining room for the holidays. The only limits are your space and your imagination. When it comes time to make home improvements, you want to keep this in mind.
Home improvements are hit and miss sometimes. Something like a new coat of paint won’t add much to your home’s resale value, neither will planting flowers in your front yard. However, some things that you can do can really add a lot to your home’s value, and one of them is to add a sun room.
